1. Patient presentation
- A 69-year-old man with ischemic cardiomyopathy was referred to our institute for follow-up of revascularization surgery.
- He had previously undergone percutaneous coronary intervention and stenting of the left anterior descending artery (LAD) and right coronary artery (RCA). His medical history also included two cerebral strokes, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and arterial hypertension.
- Stress scintigraphy revealed the presence of ischemic necrosis in the apical anterior territory, associated with a septal reverse redistribution, compatible with moderate ischemia.
- Coronary MDCT angiography was performed to assess stent patency.
